The yellow weaver bird (pictured in the bottom left picture) build nest in trees and on the reeds at the side of the river. (pictured in the top right photo) The males build multiple nests. If a female does not like the nests he built she will destroy it. He will make 10 or more nests to confuse predators who come to eat the babies. We Sister Edington weaver nest all over in all kinds of trees and bushes and reeds. They were one of the first birds I identified after we got here. They are quite fascinating.
In school in the fourth grade I taught about the mangrove trees but I actually got to see them in real life. The mangroves are pictured on the middle left of the collage. There are two pictures one showing the grove from a distance and one showing the snails that live on the trunks of the trees. They are a very important source of food for many animals.
Also pictured are a giant crocodiles, a crane, and an eagle in the tree. This was a fun ride as were saw, smelled and heard so many interesting sights and sounds. It was truly an adventure of a lifetime.
